THEME RELATED CRAFTS

Our Themes change every second week for each grade.

The Grades have different themes and the teachers and assistants are encouraged to come up with a craft over and above what is suggested in the Practitioner’s Guidebook.

Teachers and assistants are challenged to brain storm, be innovative, google and search the internet for new and fun ideas.

This is what was presented by the various classes

GREEN GROUP – Grade 000 – Theme – How to Stay Safe

BLUE and RED GROUPS – Grade 00 – Theme HELPERS – Police, Fire Brigade and Traffic Police

BLUE group made a fireman’s face, a traffic light using coloured plastic lids and a toilet roll police man

RED group did a group project – a scene with a fireman with the fire truck and fire hose putting out a large fire made with yellow, orange and red paper

There were many policemen and women on duty this week with their very smart handcrafted police hats.

GRADE R YELLOW BUTTERFLIES, BEES and BIRDS – Theme – VEGETABLES

Yellow Butterflies were very busy with their communal veggie garden which also shows us which veggies grow above the ground and which grow below the ground.

These veggies are quite safe because there is a scarecrow to chase any birds or other animals away who might want to steal and destroy the veggies.

The corn was made by painting a toilet roll inner yellow and then pasting actual popcorn seed onto the roll.

Yellow Bees made a mielie and used an actual green pepper to do veggie stamping.

Lovely to see all the different ideas and techniques used to create the veggie art.

Well done to Ms Rachael and teacher Mondli.

Yellow Birds had a very busy veggie week making a giant collage carrot and tomato plus a lovely cabbage patch. The veggie baskets looked most inviting.

Well done Yellow Birds for the group art and individual creations.

WELL DONE TO ALL THE CLASSES FOR THEIR INNOVATIVE CREATIONS
